Minnesota and 2006 Columbia Crest H3 Chardonay

Minnesota breakdown - If Minnesota fans love their Golden Gophers, they now love Tubby Smith even more. Bringing them back from the precipice (he took over two years ago after the school's worst season in 111 years), Tubby has enlivened players and fans alike. Making the tournament was no sure thing this year, but we think Minnesota's fans are looking for their team to show up big. Without a true team leader, the Gophers will look to Lawrence Westbrook to step up his shooting and freshman big men Colton Iverson and Ralph Sampson to protect their real estate inside. If they avoid pointless turnovers (aren't they all?), they just might make Tubby proud.

2006 Columbia Crest H3 Chardonay - For less popular wine regions like Washington State it is important for somebody to make a big splash and bring in attention. The region of Horse Heaven Hills (H3) is doing just that. Columbia Crest put together a slam dunk of a wine from this region and sell it far below what a wine of this quality could fetch. May Tubby and the Gophers keep bringing Minnesota life like H3 does to Washington.
